The State of Montana promises ‘transparent’ process for dispensing broadband funds
As the state determines who and where will benefit from $500 million-plus of investment to expand high-speed Internet in Montana, a handful of people will be making the decisions – and they’ll be doing it very soon.
“It’s a small office with a big task,” says Chad Rupe, the state broadband program manager overseeing the first $266 million round of grants, which will be decided by June.
This is the second of a two-part series on the launching of an historic, multimillion-dollar investment in Montana’s high-speed Internet infrastructure.
